Had the pleasure of being a caretaker of this versatile trail for four years.

it was a piece of nice woods ...the air was still and it was quiet...peaceful.

Great winter hike to stay in shape for summer hiking. Used microspikes on trail with no problem. Parking lot was plowed and easily accessible (the bald peak lot was a sheet of ice and could not get up the incline to park so went to Ledges). Beautiful hike on ledges with great views. The peak was beautiful as well.

Home of the national phenomenon of the ice disk. A must see.

Great spot for a good view and history lesson :)
Trails are short and easy - good for all levels, all families and furry friends.
Went at 3p - two other groups there,younger, smoking marijuana.

So many easy trails. Great view over the water. Good for all ages and for dogs.

Cool view. With all of the electrical towers on top can be dangerous. Exposed wires. Lots of radiation. Had a major headache and stomach ache from being at the top too long. Would not recommend taking likes or dogs up there.

The stream has some amazing cascade falls and quite impressive in winter which makes for interesting ice formations. The Chapel is worth the trek. Be sure to where spikes in winter as there is a lot of ice on the rocks along the stream.

Went 2 months ago. Lots of nice winter chanterelles along the trail. Was a bit longer than expected, and a bit steep at some points, but definitely doable

A beautiful must see during the summer months. I go every year.

A beautiful little trail that overlooks the craggy seawall. It’s pretty much the definition of Maine’s coastline.

My pal and I woke up at 4AM and watched the sunrise over the sea. However, in the summer months, be sure to prepare for mosquitoes as they love to hang around the seaweed.

Breathtaking moss forests. Love this trail all seasons.

Trail today was covered in snow but path was cut until about 1 1/2 miles in. Had to cut the rest of the way up. Used micro spikes and was ok for the most part but snowshoes in some parts would have been better. About .1 mile from peak had to turn around due to ice under the snow becoming a bit too dangerous on boulders. Tried to go around steep part but snow on side was deep. Great weather and parking lot was clear. Passed about 9 other hikers on way down.

Went for the first time this week (January 2).. icy and snowy but still very doable! Highly recommend bringing along microspikes if you expect that kind of weather.

Fun little hike! Really cool cliff/boulder area at the top. Good views out toward NH as well.

Fun snowy small hike with the pup!

Hiked this trail down from Cadillac after ascending via the South Ridge. A challenging trail that I took by mistake. It was very vertical and technical, and at several points I thought I'd fall and injure myself. Likely would not hike this again, especially with my dog in tow, but it was quite the rush!

Hiked down North Ridge after coming up Beachcroft. Not too difficult, but required caution as it had recently rained and there were icy sections. View of Jackson Lab for much of the way down.

Last week my dog and I hiked this trail up to Champlain and came down North Ridge trail, making a loop. One of our favorite hikes to date - awesome views on the way up! Even though it rained in the morning, the trail wasn't too bad - just use caution! I used microspikes for the icy sections.

Great little local hidden gem! Some fun elevation change with cool geological features, a nice little lookout, beautiful scenery, and a really pretty body of water off to your left when you're following the red path. We've passed by this spot for years and are so glad we finally decided to check it out. Will add this into our rotation for local romps!

This trail is not maintained very well. This is more of an outdoor survival training kind of trail, rather than a fun recreational trail. There are many dangerous looking widow makers, and the foot bridges have rotting timbers and exposed nails. Going in through the southern trail head took me through a prickly raspberry patch. The northern trail head was better maintained for snowmobiles. Once off the snowmobile track the path was difficult to follow. Did I mention all the poison ivy?

We included this summit on a hike which included a couple other nearby peaks. Beautiful views and some really interesting rock formations and trails as you head down from the summit toward the road/ocean.

nice walk wear good shoes

Trails are super confusing and not marked

I love visiting this place! I wouldn't consider it a hike, but a cool little step back in time. Think Sturbridge Village on a much smaller scale.

We made the mistake of doing this trail in July.... It was obscenely crowded. It really took away from the nice views.
